Every day, nearly 500 employees support reliable operations at Oyster Creek Generating Station. On Monday, June 4, more than 400 area students will have an opportunity to meet some of those men and women, and see firsthand the training, talent and expertise required to generate energy for the community.
Oyster Creek Energy Education Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. By registration only, the elementary, middle and high school students will participate in a variety of scheduled presentations and activities designed to teach them about energy, nuclear power operations and career opportunities in science and technology fields.
The public, too, will have a chance to learn about Oyster Creek on Monday, June 18 when the station hosts Community Information Night, an annual educational event that will be open to the public from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Through interactive displays and activities, Exelon representatives and technical experts will provide information on nuclear energy topics including plant operations, emergency preparedness, used fuel storage, safety, security, environmental stewardship and community outreach. Light refreshments will be available.
Visitors at both events will be treated to the station's newly created Oyster Creek Hall of Memories, a small museum that celebrates the station's history, legacy and impact on the community.
Both events will be held at the Oyster Creek Training Center off of Route 9 on Intake View Lane, just north of the plant's main entrance in Forked River. To learn more, please contact Suzanne D'Ambrosio at 609-971-2185 or by email at Suzanne.firstname.lastname@example.org.
